    Can anyone help me figure out what breed these 3 chicks are? They were bought from a mixed bin of sexed pullets. And comb type? Is that a rose comb? They are supposed to all be silver laced wyandottes, but the chick in the the top picture looks different...lighter and stripes. Thanks in advance for any help!

    They both have rose combs. They look like Wyandotte chicks. The top one is definitely Silver Laced. The other may be Gold Laced.

    Well silver or gold they are both beautiful birds so I would be happy with either. What color eggs do both lay?

    All Wyandottes should be brown layers.
